Thanksgiving spreads provide a bounty of delicious eats and treats for family, friends, and loved ones. You can find fresh produce components in many of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes. As consumers palates continue to evolve so have the traditional dishes such as mashed cauliflower replacing mashed potatoes.
Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season for many consumers. Holidays provide retailers an opportunity to capitalize on increased foot traffic. Hearty items such as potatoes, onions, celery, beans, mushrooms, and carrots allow for large impact displays promoting popular items for seasonal cooking.
Vegetables drive department sales during the cooler Thanksgiving season. Fruits are not to be forgotten and should be a focal point of your offerings.
Citrus and Apples
Citrus and Apple season hit full swing as varieties and supply begin to reach plentiful levels. Offering customers choices within these categories can increase department sales and customer awareness. Apple varieties create great opportunities for tasty demos and colorful presentations. Don’t be afraid to carry multiple sizes of certain items as your shoppers have unique preferences and expectations.
